A method to detect wake impingement on a wind turbine is described. The wake detector, which uses rotor loads as measured by on-board sensors, can then be used for implementing wind farm control strategies, for example in the form of wake redirection. The method is verified and validated by using field test data, aeroservoelastic simulations and by experimental data obtained with scaled wind turbine models tested in a large boundary layer wind tunnel.
